Interoperability and HIE Forum: Driving Interoperability in 2023: CURES, TEFCA, and Information Blocking
The long-awaited Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) is live and exchange partners are signing up. Hot on its heels comes rules from the Office of the National Coordinator for HealthIT to prevent Information Blocking as required by the 21st Century Cures Act signed into law in 2016. These rules provide for unprecedented financial penalties for entities that, “prevent, discourage, or interfere with the access, exchange, or use of [health] information.” Complying with these new rules is a challenge for many health information exchange partners. Our panel will explore the intricacies of compliance and outline the evolving compliance landscape.
This session is part of the Interoperability and HIE Forum agenda and requires separate registration
- Describe the scope of TEFCA based on the current rules published by the ONC
- Interpret new guidance on the 21st Century Cures Act Information Blocking Rule and describe the status of enforcement of the rule
